Hernandez has no chance he couldn't even beat Nadal when he was 15/16 so i think 6/2 6/1

Seriously, if you honest believed anything I said, your blowing the situation wayyy out of preportion my friend.

I expect Nadal to win in 2, but Hernandez is popular here in MTF. he deserves a thread against the king of clay. :)

As per the King's plan, he will let Nadal win so that he can be fresh and ready to take the Wimbly crown. If the King were to put even a minimum of effort into the match however, Nadal wouldn't know what hit him.

Oscar is 'King'?:eek: Since when? Well, if he is, then has Ol' Fed been declared as Emperor? When did these changes happen?

BTW, can anyone tell the time of the match in GMT, please? Star Sports decided to cover for India:D .

Never. He will be in a benevolent mood and gift a match to another one of his favorite minions. Remember, Wimbly is where the King will show his imperious form and triple bagel Fed in the finals 6-3,6-3,6-3.

It's impossible in my opinion that Nadal loses to Hernández. Something really strange would have to happen.

05-15-2007, 06:31 PM
The King knows about politics, and it seems that a predictable and categorical victory over Nadal could carry some disgust amongst his loyals, thus, he will concede the match, and let some other player be the one who takes the glory of break Nadal's run. (But he'll show courage and will practice some s&v shots in a difficult surface, all for the greater good).

i think King Oscar let Nadal get a set just to be kind again,
Hernandez-Nadal 7-6 4-6 6-0

He appears to be a player of a calm temperament.

No he's not really that good but he has a thread for himself in GM. You could read that. I dont know how to link it. Its called 'Oscar Hernadez??'

I go for the latter option.

MaryWalsh
05-15-2007, 08:43 PM
Nadal will move the King around the court. His crown will fall off. He will be distracted and lose a set while trying to retrieve it. Then in the second set the King will for some reason use his sceptre instead of his racquet. Good statement but not a successful weapon--the surface just too narrow. Nadal dethrones n 2.

Though to say.
The king has been genourous in giving matches to his opponents in the past and he could use some rest before Roland Garros and Wimbledon. The king will decide what happens tomorrow, he'll know what to do.
Poor Rafa, talk about the worst possible draw he could get.

Yes, all part of the grand plan for the peaking at Wimbledon for the King, so this will be just a good exercise in conditioning for this goal.

This one is going to go down to history. I say 6-7 7-5 7-6 to the king in 4 hrs 44 mins. I dont think NAdal can keep it up with Hernandez in the long rallies and Hernandez does have the option to finish it with a volley which Nadal doesnt have. I think Hernandez will have to mix it up, play his allcourt game to the max, Nadals passing shots are the best in the business, but Hernandez covers up almost all the net with a good approach shot, specialy coming in sometimes with his deadly 2nd serve would take Nadal by surprise.

So it will come down to if NAdal will find any holes in Hernandez S and V game in the end.
